  • Whatcom Freethinker's Meetup - Book: "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari

    Our Starter Topic is a discussion on a book titled "Sapiens", A brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari. We will be covering this book at this meeting as well as our 3rd Wednesday "Drinking Skeptically" at Barkley's Bob's Burger and Brew and our 3rd Sunday HNPS Meeting at the Skagit Valley Food Coop room 309. You do not need to read or have this book to participate in discussion and our discussion will broaden out to any timely topic that is on each of our mind. Starter topic is just an ice breaker. Those who have read or started to read the book will have the first shot in starting our conversation. Controversy! This Author has an "out in left field" concept of HUMANISM, both strongly countered by Center for Inquiry and American Humanist Association. "Doubting" Thomas has kindly offered a reprint of Free Inquiry Editor Tom Flynn's response to Yuval Harari's strange caricature of HUMANISM and LIBERALISM Please click on link below and read! https://www.dropbox.com/s/2axzwryrurts5nj/2017.06-FI-Smearing%20Humanism-Tom%20Flynn-Editorial.pdf?dl=0 We will definitely focus on the author's comments on humanism this coming Friday!

You will find the stairs to the 2nd Floor "Local Roots" room on the SE corner of the store near the last register next to the deli area. At the top of stairs, turn right into the room. Enjoy free flowing discussion on Politics, Religion, Science, Ethics, and any other controversial subject that comes to mind. We also encourage attendees to share their life story that lead their journey to the 'Land of Freethought', Free Inquiry, Skepticism towards cultural stories, norms & traditions and to the admiration of the scientific method as the only reliable means of finding answers to our probing questions and common sense solutions to humanity's current problems. Suggestions for future meeting's starter topics are encouraged. See you there!
